Thoughts on gardening
I’ve got about twenty minutes before I get ready to go out, so I thought I’d put up this quick blog post.
Looking at the garden to-day I got to thinking about next year. One thing I’ve made up my mind about, is no more spur of the moment plants from the Garden Centre just because they look good, all very colourful and an abundance of flowers, I get carried away, but nine times out of ten I know nothing about them, mostly they are a seven day wonder, looking so pretty, then before you know it just a bundle of twigs and leaves with no hint of the glory that I bought.
So many times I’ve found labels of long forgotten impulse buys lying among the debris , half the time I can’t even recall what they were or looked like. Nor are they usually in the cheapo range and you don’t get much change from a tenner, No, in future I’ll stick to tried and tested common or garden species, so next year I’ll be posting pics of Marigolds and Lupins.
Well that’s the plan for now , but I don’t think I’ll make it a New Year Resolution.
